David Bennett of Overnewton Anglican Community College has been working on remixing projects with his music tech students in years 7 through to year 10.
He also likes to keep things fresh by using current music with the students and his projects incorporate music theory skills as well as technology-based skills.
In this episode, we talk about where Dave finds audio stems for remixing projects, the software he uses with different year levels and the process the students use to create their remixes.
